Mathematics in the Aerospace Industry, and other less interesting applications, a talk by Nicholas Brusby (Rolls-Royce)
It is not always clear what and where mathematics is used within different industry sectors. This talk will provide some information about what opportunities there are in industry to use and develop mathematics and what fun and exciting applications exist.
The main part of the talk gives examples of what areas of mathematics are used and developed in Rolls-Royce plc and other companies / industry sectors along with selected applications. The mathematics discussed includes: structural analysis and it’s applications in jet engine design, big data analysis, and medical developments. Traditionally many of these applications either were not driven by mathematics or did not exist. Examples of how mathematics is being developed across different industries will illustrate how the subject is helping drive them forward and improve our understanding of the fields.
Available routes into industry available to students and recent graduates will be presented.
